Beth Steinhorn of JFFixler Group for VolunteerMatch
Organizations are recognizing that the old ways of doing business don’t work in this changing world. The good news is that today’s volunteers are interested in opportunities to help organizations innovate and pilot new ways of doing business. This webinar will explore how to engage volunteers as leaders of change. Learn where your organization is in its lifecycle and gain an appreciation for the importance of innovation in organizational sustainability. The webinar will also feature strategies for supporting volunteers and holding them accountable for change.

Centers will be equipped with computer stations, books (K-12 level), and furniture – tools to narrow the digital divide and mitigate the risk that these children will spend a lifetime in poverty. •Volunteer Task Force •Shelter partners •Supplies (book labels, computer locks) •Training on shelter youth programming and safety •Existing donor history and interests report for cultivation •Board resolution and strategic plan with Learning Center goals •Shelters’ research on current student academic performance Develop position descriptions and recruit and place retired teachers, librarians, etc., for “learning Center Team” Write case statement for potential donors Solicit cash and in-kind donations for books, computers, and furniture Collaborate with shelter partners on Learning Center program integration, grand openings, and media where appropriate Number of learning centers created in 12 months Number of youth served Number of volunteers engaged Youth attitudes toward reading, school, and computers will improve during the time they are staying in the shelter—as measured by the Garfield Attitudinal Survey Youth will choose to read during free time at the shelter at least three times per week, as recorded by the Learning Center logbook (current baseline average is 0 times per week) Students who live for at least one month in shelters with Learning Centers will be promoted to the next grade on time at a 25% higher rate than the current baseline predicts Students aged 12-17 who live for at least one month in shelters with Learning Centers will be only half as likely to drop out of school in the next year as the current baseline predicts Boomer Volunteer Engagement: Collaborate Today; Thrive Tomorrow by Jill Friedman Fixler and Sandy Eichberg
